deficits and strengthens our long-term fiscal outlook. through additional health care reforms, tax reform and by fixing our broken immigration system. we recognize the importance of the bipartisan funding compromise reached by the congress and the budget shows the president's funding priorities at the 2015 spending levels that were agreed to in the deal. however, we believe those are not sufficient, both in 2015 and beyond, and to ensure the nation is achieving its fullest potential. for that reason, the budget includes an opportunity, growth and security initiative that is fully paid for. it's split evenly between defense and nondefense and it presents additional investments in things like education, research and manufacturing. building on the model established in ryan-murray, the initial tiff is fully paid for with a balance package of spending cuts and tax reforms, so it is deficit neutral. supporting what the president said in the state of the union, the budget includes a series of measures to create jobs and accelerate growth in the economy. for example, as the mdafferings announced

, and they really do look at me like i'm on medication when i tell them, the deficit is falling pretty sharply. this mode of fiscal restraint is grossly underappreciated. i will talk about that in a minute or two. this mood of fiscal restraint will persist as long as one thing continues and that is republican control of the house. toill leave it to dr. cook give us his analysis of where the houses added after the 2014 election. i think this theme has legs and will continue for quite some time. before this,d me what about all the gridlock in washington? i would agree that we look dysfunctional in this city but i would also say that we have had some fairly interesting breakthroughs in the last two or three months. we got a budget deal with paul ryan and patty murray. i think paul ryan is growing as a politician, not as reflexively conservative. i think he was willing to even look at some modest revenue increases. we got a farm bill. it wasn't great but we got a farm bill and most importantly, you see clear signs from the republican leadership in the house that they did not want a crisis over the
